The Sports NetworkDecember 6, 2013 

Houston, TX ( - The Houston Astros have added a veteran arm to their rotation, agreeing to terms with free-agent pitcher Scott Feldman on a three-year deal worth $30 million.

"We wanted an experienced starter to anchor our pitching staff," said Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow. "Scott is a great fit for our club. He throws strikes and gets ground balls, and will be a great example for the rest of our young rotation."

Feldman, 30, split the 2013 season between the Chicago Cubs and Baltimore Orioles, going 12-12 with a 3.86 earned run average in 30 starts.

The right-hander compiled a 39-44 record with a 4.81 ERA in 204 games (101 starts) while spending his first eight years in the majors with the Texas Rangers.
